Working with children was something that McKenzie always wanted to do. Although finding her current job did take some time, with the help of Project SEARCH McKenzie found her match. Last year on her birthday, McKenzie got the good news call confirming that she was hired, giving even more to celebrate on that special day.
McKenzie works with children ages 2-5 and explains that every day is different and always fun. Admitting that she was quiet in the beginning but is now more comfortable, McKenzie shares advice to anyone thinking about employment in the childcare field: you must be passionate about it because without that, you will likely not be very successful.#CaringStartsHere
